Advisory Number: 22
Advisory Name: Closed Contracts in the Statewide Financial System
Date Issued: 10/05/2016 Date Last Updated: 10/05/2016
Subject:
Closing Contracts in the Statewide Financial System (SFS)

Guidance:
The Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) Bureau of Contracts (BOC) is actively closing contracts in the Statewide Financial System (SFS). Once OSC has closed a contract the SFS header status will display “Closed”. No further transactions can be processed against a contract in the “Closed” status.

Contracts meeting the criteria below are subject to archiving and may be closed by BOC.

  1. A minimum of one year has passed since the Expire Date of the contract and there has been no activity (SFS amendment transactions or payments) for one year.

  2. No open purchase orders (encumbrances) are associated with the contract. All purchase orders are in either “Cancelled” or “Complete” status.

Agencies should make every effort to facilitate the closing of aged contracts, including making final payments and cancelling purchase orders on a timely basis.
